Bright House Strikes Up BigBand Gear


BigBand Networks Inc. said Bright House Networks is deploying its "VOD Edge" product in the MSO’s Detroit system.

Bright House is using BigBand’s "BME50" (broadband multimedia-service edge) in hub facilities to switch video-on-demand content around the system.

"The BigBand BME50 enables the economical launch of VOD services, and its flexible programmability will support potential further advances such as modifications to server-deployment architecture or subscriber-access control," said Jeff Chen, vice president of advanced technology at Bright House, in a prepared statement.
